Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

This final film by silent screen star Harold Lloyd comes nine years after his previous feature.
In this film, that reprises a character portrayed by Lloyd in a 1925 film, it is shown what happened to our hero, Harold Diddlebock (Lloyd), twenty years after his big triumph on the college football field.
Struggling in the same job he received twenty years previous, Diddlebock is fired so he wanders the streets and eventually goes into a bar.
After drinking his first drink in his life, and a specially prepared drink in his honor, Diddlebock goes on a crazy rampage through town, buying things including a new wardrobe, a horse-drawn cab with cabby and also a circus.

This Movie is one of my all-time personal favorites!
enjoy

Subject: Harold Lloyd
A tip to this generation of movie buffs - discover Harold Lloyd! His final film is a goodbye to a physical comedian who broke performed high wire comedy, literally. His early silents are out on DvD and are priceless ( hanging from the arm of a clock stories up from the ground realtime! " safety last " } if you enjoy early 20th century screwball antics and slapstick Lloyd set the standard. Diddlebock is a nice farewell to one of the greatest.

The description given is good, sort of.
This version of the film is the one Howard Hughes mutilated. So it's not as good as the original.
But still, it's very funny.
Later Danny Kaye made a much worse remake.
The movie itself is very clever in a number of ways due to the genius of the star and director; too factoids to go into.
Watch it and see if you don't like it.
